July this year in the UK was mental. Temperates of 35 - 38 not uncommon.
It's obvious that the world is getting warmer I have seen the change over the last 20 years.
We are certainly going to have to prepare ourselves for more extreme weather.
Also we all need to do our bit - turn off computers / stereos / lights when not in use, change all lightbulbs for energy efficient ones, take less car trips and buy smaller more economical cars and generally think a bit more about our 'Carbon Footprint'.
By the way CYRAX how old are you and have you seen any changes down in Australia apart from right now ?

The higest temp recorded in the UK in July was 36.5c at Wisley on the 19th. This, incidently, was the only day on which temps anywahere exceeded 35c

Notwithstanding which, it was the warmest month on record.

Temperatures of 38 degrees would be considered mild for summer where I live in Australia. It regularly gets to 45 degrees for quite a number of days over summer. Only a few years ago it got up to 48 degrees.

I live in a rural area in southern NSW and yes, talk about drought, it's already the worst in 100 years and no significant rain forcased till March next year.

Just been looking at one of the medium range forecast models and it's predicting heavy precipitation and a maximum temperature of 1c for the Midlands for next Saturday (21st October)


Does look like turning cooler here in the UK next week (after a very mild start to the month) but probably not quite that cold. Be nice if it was though! A while since we had snow in England in October .....

I only got a reverse cycle airconditioner a couple of years ago, before that all I had was a small fan. I remember some nights it was 40 degrees inside at midnight. Made for some sleepless nights I can tell you. But in the end you get used to it.

And now for a "how things have changed since I was a kid", or "back in my day..." if I really want to be anoying.


When I went to school, no airconditioners, in 40 plus temperatures only celing fans, some days your shirt would be stuck to the seat from sweat, makes for a productive school day don't you think.

When it was sports days and we played football we had skins and shirts - Imagine that today no sunscreen, no shirt, and 40 degrees playing sport for 2 - 3 hours. These days you are not even allowed outside in the summer without a hat at school.

Yeah i'm in Sydney too, and it was pretty hot today. This is summerish weather already. I just hope this doesn't mean summer will be super hot.

Yeah,

Im from Melbourne and the 37 degrees it hit yesterday is bloody rediculous ! It was the hottest october day here since 1914 !!!!

Ive realised the wether change easily from the last 15years. I remember in 1996 when I was building my parents house it was the last year we've had with descent rain. I remember this because every weekend when we would work on the house we would spend at least an hour scooping up water out of trenches.

Since 1996, it has really dried up here and the latest reports are that unless something gets done NOW, Melbourne will run out of water within 3 years unless the weather changes back to cooler.

Dont know if you guys know where Bendigo and Ballarat are in Victoria but they are the 3rd and 4th largest cities in the state and they are absolutely #ting themselves because their estimates are that they will run out of water THIS summer.

What will they do if threatened by bushfire?

Screw the western capatalist society for worshipping the Dollar ! For if the dollar didnt have the status it does, then maybe we could have had alot of the free energy design that TESLA thought of 100 years ago in society now, we could be driving water powered vehicles and have pollution free energy, but no, we have to have wars over the arab oil, that our government worship so much.

Wake up and feel the heat, we do not need their oil, we have alternatives.
Australia has atleast 300 years of natural gas supply that we do not take advantage off. We sell it to the Chinese for a couple cents a litre. We sell LPG to the Chinese for 2 cents a litre but to fill our cars gets charged 55 cents a litre, bloody money hungry taxing crooks aeach and every one of the politician thieves!!!!

Sorry for your troubles...
I guess the weather information analysist hasn't told you that it is really just average temps, but seem higher due to "random reason"...

I live in the central US, and can tell you that I have seen the summers get much hotter in just the last two years... especially this year...
We had huge stretches of days, with over 100 degrees... (In previous years, we rarely had 100+ days, much less in a row)

But when all my fellow Okies started to notice, the weather man said... "its actually normal variations of weather patterns, we are still within average temps..."

Yeah... average temps of the higher reaches of hell...

averaging temps is dangerous business, since day and night temps tend to really skew the actual amount of heat buildup during the day...
